After the incineration (and some would argue return to the ether) of Hendricks Rangel, Basilio Fig stepped onto the field. As a sentient palm tree growing near one of the Fridays' most frequented playing spots, Fig had already been a fan of blaseball for quite some time. At the very moment that Rangel's physical form released, Our Lady of Perpetual Friday graced Fig with a renewed vigor in their roots, allowing them to stride across the field and join the Fridays.

Eyewitnesses say that each time Fig steps up to bat time seems to slow. In that instant a pair of muscular arms grow from their barklike torso allowing them to swing their bat.

Fig is close friends with a family of toucans that were blown into their upper branches by a passing storm. Fridays player Fletcher Yamamoto can be found nesting with Fig on their days off together.

Career as a Taco

Fig settled quickly in the infinite Los Angeli, helped in part by the similarly tropical climate. They found a new home on Figueroa Street, which is now and has always been named for them. Fellow Tacos teammate Basilio Mason has yet to comment on no longer being the only Basilio on the team, but Fig expressed that they were "happy to be a part of the Tacos name sharing tradition."

The Many Faces of Basilio Fig

According to the Interdimensional Rumor Mill, some things never change, even across dimensions. Someone, somewhere, decided to catalog all the different versions of Basilio Fig in a Rumor Registry, but today the version from IF-2.470 is playing. Here’s what the rumors say...

Ficus Pseudopalma Fig

Basilio Fig resembles a palm tree, leading many to assume she is one, while in actuality she is a palmleaf fig. He is described as an "erect shrub, glabrous, unbranched; leaves subsessile, crowded at tips of branches and giving appearance of a small palm, blades oblanceolate, to 30 in long, nearly cordate, acute to acuminate, coarsely sinuate-toothed, stipules persistent, lanceolate, 2-3 in long; figs paired, ovoid, dark green, to 1 1/2 in long, short-peduncled" [1]. Although the palmleaf fig, ficus pseudopalma, is also known as the dracaena fig, she has, at this time, no known relation to neither Alexandria Dracaena nor Thomas Dracaena.

While a member of the Hawai'i Fridays, Fig took a first-aid course in order to get a life-guarding license. Although this certificate has since expired, he assumes he is still well versed enough in first-aid to help the Tacos if need were to arise.

Fig, having a great affinity towards wasps, while not allowed to keep one as a pet in Hawai'i due to concerns for ecological damage, was able to find a positive in his Los Angeli Feedback swap. With less concern for becoming an invasive species, she promptly adopted several wasps, one of which who usually chills in her pocket, and has taken up beekeeping. He has turned her apartment into a pollinator sanctuary and also grows lots of fruits and vegetables, leading him to become a lovely chef and taco maker.

Return to the Fridays

In Season 2, Fig was burped out of the Black Hole(Black Hole) and collided with Fridays batter Mags Highlife. After apologizing somberly, they took up the bat, back on their original team and in their native home after a long time. They remain a poor cook and an excited skateboarder.
